What the Hell is XM Radio?
Possibly one of the biggest new innovations in the broadcasting world at the moment, XM Radio provides crystal clear digital sound around the globe without commercials or unwanted stoppages. It offers tons of listening options, from every type of music genre to every type of sporting event and news programming. No wonder the satellite radio service is number one in the United States with over two million loyal customers.
The numbers are astounding. Those two million listeners get the pleasure of picking among 68 commercial-free music channels. This includes any genre from country, rap, bluegrass, reggae, rockabilly, to classical. On top of these, you get 33 channels for the latest in news and sports, along with the leading talk shows and entertainment programs. Even more amazing are the 21 channels that provide continuous and instantaneous weather and traffic for the major metropolitan areas in the country.
XM Radio is not just built on its airwaves. There are its award-winning receivers and reception devices that you need to pick up the satellite radio signals. First, don't be scared that you're going to have to go out and replace your home and stereo equipment. That's not the case here. You can easily add satellite radio service to your existing audio and home theater system.
Or you can buy the latest brand-new XM Radio equipment. They are some of the smallest and lightest satellite receivers and antennae in the field, so it is a sound investment any way you look at it. Your XM equipment allows you to listen to regular radio terrestrial broadcasts if you want, including AM and FM, along with your CDs and cassettes.
Other features for the receivers include a display and memory so that the device shows the channel name, artist name, and song title for every piece you listen to. No more reliance on a DJ to let you know what you are listening to. For automobile audiophiles, the satellite radio service is available in more than 100 new cars in the 2005 models. You can pick up the Delphi XM Roady 2, the Delphi XM Roady, or the XMCommander for your ultimate car listening pleasure.
